Priced Per Pair

Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Evolution C2 (JL Audio)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6" x 9"
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
125 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
75 watts
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
93 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
53 - 22,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.

Waste Of Money

June 20, 2012

I was JL Audio's absolute biggest fan until I bought these speakers. The highs sound pretty good and the bass gets about as low as you expect a 6x9 to get. BUT, the mids to me were absolutely horrible! On some songs, they were ok, but if anybody but a woman is in the song, the voice is inaccurate and scratchy. Also, although the bass CAN get semi deep, it is not clean bass at all. My previous speakers were Kenwood 6x9's and I can honestly say they were every bit as good as these for half the price. OVERALL: These speakers are a step up from factory and better than the speakers you can buy at Wal-Mart. But believe me, for the price, you can find a lot better sound quality speakers (I have). Needles to say, I sent these speakers back within days of installing them. JL Audio's door speakers are not on par with their other products.

I have been a JL fan for quit some time. Have heard some good things about these 6x9 n just had to get me pair for the corolla. They sound really nice very good detail in the music gives a warm feeling when u listen to them. These might be entry level speakers,but you can't beat them for the price.

I have 4 of these in my 300c. They are all installed behind the back seat head rests. On an orion hcca1000.4 these things are crazy loud and can be heard clearly from a long ways away. Mids/lows are incredible compared to any 6x9 i've ever heard personally.

Little dissapointed in JL's 6x9s.

October 2, 2011

Needed a little rear fill for my regular cab Tundra and thought these might fit the bill. Ordered the JLs and purchased a set of wedged mdf boxed from Sonic to put them in.

Got them hooked up to my Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD and I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed in their sound. I'm assuming it's because they're in such small boxes but WOW they sound horrible.

Planning on upgrading to the JL XD400/4 amp to see if that wakes these speakers up.

Sound Great

March 13, 2012

These speakers sound great when paired with a 300w Slash V2 amp. They are pretty powerful and have a nice crisp sound. However, they aren't very durable, after about 3-4 months I had one of the tweeters explode.
